To accompany your Asian Meal, this beautiful salad with all shades of green and red cherries makes for a splendid centerpiece and will have your guests requesting the recipe. An old acquaintance of mine always brought this to potlucks and it had tongues wagging and lips smacking. I added the cherries and have learned to blend the dressing in my Vitamix until piping hot, thick, and glossy. So Crab Rangoon, Sticky Asian Chicken, and this salad will make a fabulous New Year’s Eve Feast.
For dressing, mix in blender until smooth:
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup rice vinegar
3 T. soy sauce
1- 10 ounce bag hearts of romaine mix
1- 12 ounce bag broccoli florets
4 ounces dried cherries
Note- Ramen mixture and dressing can be made ahead. Do not toss until ready to serve. Recipe is for a BIG salad. If you feel that the entire salad will not be eaten in one sitting then do not toss salad elements together serve separate and let everyone create their own. This way the greens will stay fresh and not get soggy.
Come back tomorrow for Day 22, almost there!
